2020 Post Flirtation
From Martha: "This is always a fun wine to make, as it marks the beginning of harvest in late August. The Urban Edge Farm is located outside of Oakley, Contra Costa County (affectionately CoCo). The weather and soils of CoCo are reminiscent of the Mediterranean, with a hot landmass, super-duper sandy soils, and a near-constant cooling wind coming off of the frigid salty waters of the Carquinez Strait. The old vine Colombard in this blend is versatile, as it maintains the same sugar level and acidity on the vine from August to November. When picked in late August, it reminds me of a featherweight Basque Txakoli (while our late season Colombard going into our Honeymoon has a more Chenin-like characteristic). The combination of these two vineyards results in a wine full of summer flavours, slightly salty, and extremely drinkable."
This thirst-quenching blend tastes like a margarita and a light white wine went on a date and got a tamari glazed dulce de leche for dessert. Lively aromas of grapefruit oil and salty clay mingle for a slightly spritzed sipper that meets you where you're at. Enjoy it with Vietnamese lemongrass chicken and foods that are marinated in lime juice. This mineral-driven wine pairs well with anything from the ocean.
